Can I File for Bankruptcy Again?


If you have previously filed for bankruptcy protection, and you've found yourself dealing with unmanageable debt a second time, you may be wondering if you can file bankruptcy again. Going through bankruptcy a second time is not exactly a pleasant thought but if you're struggling with debt, and you think you may need to file bankruptcy again, it's important to know if this is even an option for you.

Technically, there are no limits on how often you can file for bankruptcy protection; however, if you expect to receive a second discharge, you will need to wait a certain amount of time between filings.
